Nesting Bald Eagles

For the past 12 years a pair of Bald Eagles have nested at the Endless Mountains Nature Center. Local bird watchers and wildlife photographers have been documenting and tracking the life of these eagles. Two of the bird watchers will bring their spotting scopes for you to use, and they’ll share their knowledge of eagles.

Each year a pair will add sticks and fresh evergreen boughs to the previous year’s nest, if it is still standing. This process of cleaning house may begin as early as January, depending on the winter weather. During winters when the river freezes over the birds will be further south until the ice melts enough for fishing. By April the eggs will have hatched and the hatchlings should be visibly from a quiet, safe viewing distance, across the river.

For the first time, Carbon County Environmental Education Center will be presenting their live eagle presentation. The basic information will be the same, but their stories about the birds and the eagles’ roles in history will be fresh and new. You’ll have the opportunity to view a Bald and a Golden Eagle.

A make-n-take craft and activities will be set up for the children, along with educational displays for everyone.

Space is limited; register early.
